Hello my dears,
While my sisters were here, I offered to do some sewing for them if needed. My younger sister took me up on the offer and asked me to sew her a long sleeved t-shirt. Not including popping to Joann for the fabric, this shirt took me about half an hour to whip up. Which is pretty fantastic! This was my fourth time using the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes pattern, so it's no wonder that it came together that quickly.
Hello my dears!
I have been rather silent on all social medias the past week. My sisters and best pals have been in town visiting which means loads of shenanigans! We've been hanging out, watching movies, crafting, visiting friends, and even managed a trip to the beach. It has all been rather splendid! (I will forewarn you: this is a picture heavy post without much blathering from yours truly.)

My family recently moved out of state, but, before they left, my sisters and I decided to do a mini photoshoot as a sort of last fling. I also had another dress from last summer to share, so it was a lovely opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. This is Simplicity 1587. When… Continue reading Sisters and a Blue Dress: Simplicity 1587
Valentine's Day started cold and slightly windy, but mellowed out enough to enable my sister and I to snap these pictures without extreme discomfort. Little Sister's outfit is something I sewed up in the last couple of days before Christmas so she could wear it for Christmas Eve. The dress has a simple tiered skirt… Continue reading Valentine’s Day 2016
The other day, my sisters and I decided to do a fun little photo shoot. We headed over to a nearby park, braved the cold, and this was the result. Emily's Outfit: Dress: Made-by-me Butterick 6018 Shoes: Payless Photographer Sister's outfit: Blouse: Thrifted top Corset: birthday gift Skirt: green circle skirt made by my older sister Kristin (pictured… Continue reading Sisters
